We’re locked down so I’ve been using my tacx flow smart trainer nearly every day. Last night I turned it on, and nothing. No lights, not transmitting, nothing.
I searched all the forums and once mentioned a blown resistor on the circuit board. I took mine apart and, yup, blown resistor. Now it’s a paperweight.
I’ve reached out to Garmin (who now own tacx after 1st April) to see what can be done (I might just be outside warranty), but in the mean time, I’m going to be attempting to continue training on a very old set of dumb rollers, which I’ll have to learn to ride first.
I’d still prefer the smart turbo, but extreme circumstances call for extreme measures!
